We would like your feedback concerning an issue raised in the October
State School Board meeting. =20

=20

Governor Huntsman is supportive of kindergarten programs, especially
extended day and full day kindergarten.  State Board Chair, Kim
Burningham brought the issue up in the October board meeting soliciting
dialogue from members.   The Board would like us to propose a plan for
funding full day Kindergarten.   We would appreciate your input on the
following questions:

=20

1.                 Do you currently have full day kindergarten (FDK) in
your district?

a.       If yes - how many schools/classrooms have FDK?

b.       If no - do you wish to have FDK in you districts?

=20

2.                 Identify specific costs that must be funded to
provide successful FDK in your schools/classrooms?=20

=20

3.                 How many schools/classes would you wish to move into
FDK programs?=20

=20

4.                 If the FDK program is funded in annual phases, what
criteria would you use to determine the schools you will fund first
(e.g., Poverty, School academic performance, Space in schools)?

=20

5.                 How many schools/classrooms in your district would
you wish to move to FDK in the first year?

=20

6.                 Please provide other information that will be useful
for us to provide to the Board. =20

=20

=20

Post Script -

We have added this topic to the Standing Committee Meeting on October
19.

=20

Thank you

Brett
